hi all
well we are at the end of 2015 can you believe it!
and we have a new mixed media challenge at 
That craft place
and as always its 
Anything goes

i really enjoyed making this one, my sister renewed her wedding vows in august
 for their 10th anniversary, well we are all shorties in our family so of course she had
 to have a chuck take off the bottom of her dress, which of course i snaffled up 
( you just dont throw away beautiful satin and lace).

so i came up with this idea for a keepsake for her

isnt it beautiful lace!

but all the fab detail was on the back as with most wedding dresses

i replicated it as close as i could.

then for the base i took one of the oval plaques covered it in the same paper i used for her invites


added a spool of the same ribbon, a sample of the lace( which i hoped looks like a bale of fabric)
some pretty buttons and a thimble

and finally a tiny replica of the bouquet i made for her.

thank fully she loved it lol.

i am always nervous when i make something for someone until i know they like it .

all the important links 

so thats it until next year guys 

i hope you have a wonderful christmas
and wish you all the very best for a peaceful and blessed 2016

hey all you lovely blog peeps, i have a post for you for the new 
this weeks theme is 
Add a bow
im using
Poison Ivy
from Barbara Jenson
at Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet

i have made a wall hanging which is almost a4 size, the base is a picture of a tree i took, then i have fussy cut  ( what felt like a million) leave, the image was printed coloured and fussy cut then glued in place, then i added the individual leaves all around building up the effect of her standing in a forest, i added 3 fussy cut dragon flies which i glazed and lightly glittered so they shimmer, and the bow is used to hang it.

hope you like her
